NEWTON TWP. - The Newton Township Board of Supervisors announced that the drainage problem at St. Benedict's Church has been fixed and water should no longer be draining onto local homeowners' properties.
In the past, the drainage ditch has overflowed into neighboring residents properties, causing water to pool on properties. The Supervisors said the current renovations of the dance floor at the Newton Recreation Center are complete and the current dance company in the building has agreed to a one -year lease, which will help offset the investment of the floor.
In other business, Supervisors approved masonry work to begin at the Rec Center; the gathering of information in regard to propane prices, and a lot sub-division for Ronald Kuhn to install a septic system.
